Certified Course Reviewer

Transforming education for the future

The Peer Review Portal (PRP) and the Higher Education Leadership Institute (HELI) are pleased to  offer a professional development short course in Course and Assessment Review leading to certification as a course reviewer by HELI and recognised by the PRP.

This online course has been developed specifically for participants who undertake course reviews for the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), universities and independent higher education providers. This course will help participants develop best practice in course and assessment review methodologies.

Over five weeks, participants are guided through five modules created to help develop best practice in Course and Assessment Review, aiming to improve course quality and regulatory outcomes. Each week consists of readings, content and an online asynchronous Q&A.

Normally the course requires participants engage for 10 hours each week (approximately 3hrs directed, 7hrs self-directed), however this may be more or less depending on your individual experience and expectations. Included in the course there are two one-hour Zoom clinics led by the Course Educator, one each in weeks three and five. The Course is delivered through HELI’s learning management system.
